Jianfengling Rainforest Park 尖峰岭国家森林公园
 Hainan is known as a tropical paradise for a number of factors, and its beaches and blue skies are two of the most well known of these reasons. Another reason that Hainan is so revered as a tropical getaway is the abundance of tropical rainforests that it has to offer visitors.


Jianfengling forest park is one of the most accessible and convenient of Hainan's tropical rainforest parks.



Located in the southwest of Hainan Island in Ledong County, Jianfengling National Forest Park is 90 kilometers away from Sanya City. The park covers 1,600 hectares and was established in 1992 to preserve the rainforest and the rare animals living there. Thus far, it is the largest, most preserved, tropical rainforest in China.


Trais in the park occasionally include boardwalks and stairs to get you over the most difficult terrain, but for the most part they are natural and just challenging enough to make it enjoyable, making hiking in this area much more interesting than in most other Chinese forests or mountains, where you are restricted to concrete paths or must hike thousands of stone stairs up a mountainside.




A trip to Jianfengling Park is inclomplete without a visit to Tian Chi, which literally means Heavens Lake. As expected, its extraordinarily serene surface creates a perfect reflection of the sky – as well as the rainforest-covered mountains – above.



Thanks to its rainforest surroundings and its altitude some 600m above sea level, Tian Chi is often shrouded in mist. One of the most beautiful times to see this is at dawn. As the fog rises over the lotus-covered lake, the only sounds are birds chirping and a determined rooster crowing in the distance.



It takes about two and a half hours to hike to the 1,412m-high mountain peak. On a clear day, climbers will be rewarded with a dynamic view of the fantastic rain forests, especially at sunrise or sunset.



The best time to visit is between the months of November and April, as the weather will be pleasantly cool as you can appreciate the most beautiful landscapes on more sunny days.


Accommodation: Another advantage of visiting the park is an easy access to several hotels and resorts inside the park. One resort overlooks Tian Chi lake, while another offers enchanting private wooden cabins dotted across the forested slopes.


Transportation: Drive a private car, or take the long-distance bus from Sanya Central Bus Station at Jiefang Road to Huangliu Town. Then hire a taxi or tuk-tuk to reach the park. The whole journey takes about 1.5 hours.
